CPM MagnaCut - Powdered stainless steel produced using the Crucible® Particle Metallurgy (CPM) process hardened to 60.5-62.5 HRC. The high content of vanadium 4.0% (V), molybdenum 2.0% (Mo) and niobium 2.0% (Nb) guarantees accuracy and purity unmatched by more 'conventional' steels. Designed and developed specifically for blade production by Larrin Thomas, it meets all the requirements of knife enthusiasts. With CPM MagnaCut has succeeded in creating a steel that combines unique properties like no other knife steel. The result is a blade material that offers an extraordinary balance of wear resistance, strength and corrosion resistance. There is currently no other steel on the world market that offers a comparable combination of excellent properties. This unique steel is produced at Crucible® Industries' US steel mills.
S/A (Single Action) OTF - a knife with a blade that can be extended by pressing a button, but once extended the blade must be retracted by hand. This means that the blade can be ejected in less than a second, making this type of OTF very fast. However, the blade must be retracted when finished by pulling on the handle usually located on the back of the handle. One of the main advantages of single-action OTFs is the simplified mechanism which makes them very robust and durable. They require fewer parts, so there are fewer components that can break. This simplicity also means that the knife is less prone to failure during use.
Blade - RE (Recurve Edge) type with a single cutting edge. Blade finished to mask minor scratches using the Stonewashed method. Plain blade, derived from a high concave grind (Hollow Grind), providing excellent cutting properties. This gives the knife excellent piercing qualities whilst retaining its strength. On the back there are characteristic "ribs", reminiscent of the mythical Hydra. The mechanism for extending the blade by means of a moled drop-shaped button under the thumb requires, for safety, the application of a specific force to overcome the resistance of the spring.
Handle - made on CNC milling machines with excellent precision, from black anodised 6061-T6 aluminium. There are notches (jimping) on the Handle for a more secure grip. The slim design allows the knife to be tucked into any pocket. The single-position (right) deep carry clip, allows the knife to be carried discreetly in the pocket in the tip-down position (blade tip down). The back of the handle extends to retract the blade and tighten the spring for the next opening.
